Hi,

I keep losing 2 hours ever time I reboot my computer and I have to go in and change it each time. Does anyone know what might cause this? CMOS Batteries??

Welcome to TSG! :D

Yep, sounds like the CMOS battery. If this computer is a few years old, than the battery is the most likely suspect.

Open the case and look at your motherboard -- there should be a flat battery (looks like a large, round watch battery). Just make sure you're grounded (touching an unpainted metal surface or using an antistatic wrist strap) before removing the battery.
